Up in the California Sierras where we have our winter cabin, every
year we get one or two people who die in their van from bad stoves.
The typical story is that the snow is blowing, sometimes blocking the
exhaust or pushing bad air under the door where it finds its way
inside (because in this case the doors are not sealed well or there
are holes for wires in the chassis).
In our van we installed a very simple regular Airtronic D2 made by the
German company espar. We bought it online with heatso in the UK. The
Sprinter has something set up to get your fuel supply directly into
our diesel tank. You can do the same thing directly from the diesel
line next to the Raccor filters. Fresh air in (inlet in the cockpit in
a sheltered place), warm air out and exhaust away from that (outside
the hull). It is super efficient, powerful, takes hours to install,
and can easily heat the whole boat. If you want to heat the driver
area, super easy, you add a Y connector and a duct. Very, very
If you are a solo navigator, just put the controls near the wheel.
At 2.200 m altitude we go from 20F to 75F in 15 minutes.
Even if you don't die, bad fumes will cause nausea and headaches (I am
not an MD).
